Dr. Greenthumb's Em-Dog is a result of a "joint" collaboration with B Real of Cypress Hill whose in-house marijuana breeder Kief Sweat created it. The goal was to innovate and develop around the OG Kush line and this one really hit the spot.
Dr. Greenthumb's Em-Dog was produced by crossing the original OG Kush (aka the Crippy) with Chem #4. It performs very well indoors and in a greenhouse. Outdoors it really needs the warm climate of the Mediterranean or similar to really deliver. Em-Dog is a 70% indica weed strain with a very high THC production potential. Indoor yields are in the region 350 - 525 gr/m2 in a flowering time of 63 - 68 days. These buds can get very heavy so growers may need to help support them to avoid snapping branches. Outdoors (or in a greenhouse) plants can get very tall at up to 4 meters with correspondingly high yields; each plant can produce between 2 - 3 kilos each! Northern hemisphere harvests will be around mid-October. Buds are big and dense from this very-easy-to-grow strain.
The scent and taste of Em-Dog include tropical fruit, lemon, exotic woods, pine and diesel. THC production can go off the map; levels of between 20% - 27% have been recorded! CBD is very low at just 0.1%. The effect is very powerful indeed and quite well-balanced with slightly greater emphasis on the physical than the cerebral. It is an incredibly relaxing cannabis strain.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
